Between Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Santissima Annunziata in Florence, on the second floor of a recently restored Renaissance palazzo, stunning 109-sqm apartment with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and terrace. The property, accessed from Via dei Servi, is currently under renovation and the buyer is given the freedom of choosing the finishes he/she prefers, which can be seen on a catalog on site.
The main door opens into a double hall: right at the entrance, there is a cosy dining area and just beyond a living room with a French window leading onto the terrace (11 sqm). On one side of the hall there is a kitchen, while a winding staircase leads to the upper floor, where there is a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.
Back on the ground floor, a door leads into a small hallway from here one can reach the second bedroom (with a French window to the terrace), the laundry and the bathroom.
The building is the typical Florentine palazzo: the main façades, along Via dei Servi and Via Bufalini, are laid over four floors. The lower one features the light ashlar (bugnato) commonly found in many palazzos dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries. A string course marks the lower edge of the second floor, sporting gabled windows (both triangular and half-circular) and well-visible cornerstones in contrast with the white plastered façade. A second course marks the third floor, identical in style to the one below it, which then goes on to the roof without further divisions.
